I am not sure hwat the difference is between your requests 1 and 2. But you can cause all the text to be selected when you click on a cell by setting this property. this.gridDisplay.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.SelectAll;

Thank you! For question #2, when click many times on cell, how is the text (on the cell) still selected (not select one word of text) ?

If you want to selectall on a doubleclick of an active cell (instead of selecting a word), handle the CurrentCellControlDoubleClick event. private void gridControl1_CurrentCellControlDoubleClick(object sender, ControlEventArgs e) { GridTextBoxControl tb = e.Control as GridTextBoxControl; if(tb != null) { tb.SelectAll(); } }

When using tb.SelectAll() or this.dgrTemplateManagement.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCellActivateAction.SelectAll, How to show the text at the beginning of textBox? Thanks!

You can try handling the CurrentCellControlGotFocus event.
private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellControlGotFocus(object sender, ControlEventArgs e)
	GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell;
	GridTextBoxControl tb = cc.Renderer.Control as GridTextBoxControl;
	if(tb != null)
		tb.SelectionStart = tb.Text.Length;
		tb.SelectionLength = 0;
